Fishing Kayaks are becoming increasingly popular in Australia and many Australians are ditching the boat to make way for a kayak which is purpose built for the angler. The Weekend Warrior range includes the entry level all rounder kayak which is if you want to occasionally throw a line in, to the kayak with a full rudder steering system with ample storage for the catch.
The fishing kayaks are designed with built in rod holders, hatches, bucket wells, anchor points and so much more to keep you on the water for hours. The most important element of a fishing kayak is stability and comfort. You need to be able to stand in a kayak and cast the rod, as well as ample space for all the fishing gear.
